Go On These 5 Road Trips Around Pune Before Monsoon Ends

The best combination of monsoons includes kadak adrk chai + bhajiyas and lush green roads + music + rains. This formula ensures a great time with your friends. And, since you are in Pune, make the most of it by going on a ride to these places around the city.

Kamshet

Only an hour and a half's ride away, Kamshet is one of the favourite monsoon drives for Punekars. The green roads, the small waterfalls and the rivulets add so much to the drive. You can stop at a roadside tapri and sip on some piping hot tea as it pours heavily around you. Could you think of anything better? Kamshet also provides access to the ancient Bedse Caves and they look even more beautiful during rains.

Lonavala

Cliche but a classic. Lonavala has been a favourite getaway probably since our parents' time. The small town offers a beautiful climate, eateries at almost every kilometre and who can miss the corn bhajiyas at Tiger Point? There are also so many points here that you could go and visit and never get bored of the nature around you. 

Mahabaleshwar

Of strawberries, valleys, mountains and more. Mahabaleshwar is yet another favourite for getaways throughout the year. But in monsoons, the entire village (or small town) becomes so beautiful! It's covered in fog most times and it's cold! You will find a number of hawkers selling corn, chai, bhajiyas and much more. However, our personal suggestion is that you stay over at a cute villa or something. 

Tamhini Ghat

A growing favourite among Punekars for the past couple of years, Tamhini Ghat is perfect for a long drive with friends, family or even your significant other. You will find this route offers a lot of scenic beauty throughout the journey and thus, we'd suggest all you photographers to take your cameras along. The route also has a number of dhabas and tapris that serve some really good food.
